Additional Information

1926 Cavalier is what I believe this beauty to be. Presented running, in wonderful as found condition. Caseback marked Bulova Quality Filled. No date code on movement. Case serial number has what appears to be a dash ( - ) or perhaps an upside down "T" preceeding. At first I thought it was a mis-struck 1 but now I'm not sure it's even a part of the S/N. Ad is from site and is date Sept 1926. My father was a pocket watch collector, this is the fisrt pocket watch I've bought. The price was right.

Yes Jerin, this is the one.

I bid on this one but it got too high for me as I had other things to buy. 

Cavalier all the way. Very nice watch Geoff.

And it's even engraved with your name :-)

Nice find! I think we have yet to see many of these early pocket watches. It's nice to hear that your dad also collected!

Bah!  I should have done the BIN on it instead of trying to work the deal.  Very nice Geoff!

Hindsight is ALWAYS 20/20 - I always realize what I SHOULD have done, right after I didn't do it.
